Enhancing Student Life
Some of the most profound lessons learned through the college experience take place outside the classroom during student activities, study sessions, intramural games or workouts in the gym. Eckerd strives to provide student gathering spaces and facilities that foster these opportunities.
Early gifts to the Campaign made it possible for the College to construct a new Eckerd Fitness Center in a portion of the former Cobb Library building. In addition to this new facility, a multipurpose structure with a roof and open sides, informal tiered seating and a platform stage is planned. It will be large enough to accommodate a full-sized basketball court. With its stage, this structure will become a venue for musical concerts and informal presentations.
